FENSTER (Bln via NYC) // Formed in 2010 by JJ, a New Yorker and Jonathan, a Berliner.
FENSTER makes de-constructed pop music. Their lyrics are often carefully constructed dream narratives, finding inspiration in the world of ghosts, graveyards. trains, religious imagery, and broken machinery. In their music, they build songs around errors, blending melodic chords with broken beats or minimal percussion. Their instruments range from banjo to synth to inanimate objects, using slamming doors and city soundscapes.
They recorded their first album Bones with their friend and producer Tadklimp before ever having played live together. The recordings took exactly eight days and were a magical time, where they almost completely lived at their basement studio in Steglitz in the dead of winter. A window fell on JJ's head and shattered.
